The label «correísta» (or «anti-correísta») was precisely a useful abbreviation Country Email List that was not fully defined, but that captured what those voters could identify and against which they could take a position. The hypothesis that we proposed with respect to these voters, for example, was that the majority of them were going Country Email List to be located on the anti-correísta side Country Email List of the division and vote mostly for Lasso in the second round. A post-election analysis shows.
That this is what actually happened4 . Country Email List Returning to the voters of Yaku Pérez, we said that the most important cleavage that simplified the decision for them was that of «left/right». As a consequence, faced with the choice between Country Email List Correismo and a conservative right-wing banker, the reasonable expectation Country Email List was that the majority of voters who had previously cast their vote for Yaku.
Pérez would bite the bullet in the second round and elect Arauz. Put more appropriately, the most viable options for them were to annul the vote (precisely what Pachakutik was promoting as a sign of rejection Country Email List of the electoral system as a whole) or to vote for Arauz, without forgetting the tensions between Correismo and the rest of the left. This being the case, it was sensible to think that the votes that went to Hervas would go, in majority, to Country Email List Lasso. And it was reasonable to assume that most of the votes that went to Yaku Pérez would be split between Arauz and the null vote, with only a few going to Lasso. In this specific scenario, each null vote of a voter who previously voted Country Email List for Pérez was, in the general trend, one vote less for Arauz, and therefore the beneficiary was Lasso in the calculation of the official result according to the Ecuadorian electoral system. The second round and the massive invalid vote In the Ecuadorian electoral system, null and blank votes are not part of the total "valid votes" used to calculate the official election results.
